Our Story

Creating an environment that enriches people's lives and treading softly on the earth is the St. Eval vision which began over 29 years ago; these values remain at the very heart of our inspiration for creating beautiful candles and home fragrances. B Corp certified and based on our farm in North Cornwall, we place people and the planet at the heart of our business.

Take a glimpse behind the scenes and learn our story:

Keeping traditions alive

Nestled on our farm in North Cornwall, St Eval Candle Company was born from humble beginnings, crafting candles by hand in the family farmhouse kitchen. 

Keen to keep traditional crafts alive and with our spirits rooted in all things natural, we draw inspiration from our beautiful surroundings in the Cornish countryside; creating pots, candles and fragrances inspired by nature.

Today, we're celebrating over 29 years of perfecting the art and science of making candles. We use a combination of traditional and contemporary methods so that each candle is made with a personal touch to ensure superior quality in style, fragrance and burn.

Please see Making Candles for a behind-the-scenes look at just how we roll.
